I'm looking for information on William & Mary Drake in Harrison Co.,OH. from 1819-1835. They bought their land from Neal & Susanna Peacock 5 July 1819. William & Mary Drake moved to Harrison Co.,OH. from Bedford Co.,PA. They sold half their land to Reuben Allen on 1 April 1835. One of my questions would be are all these people related or not? What was Mary Drake's maiden name? How many children did they have & what were their names? Did Wiliam & Mary Drake die in Harrison Co. or did they move somewhere else? I now believe William & Mary Drake were the parents of my 2xgreat-grandfather,Thomas Drake, born 1810 MD. He married Hannah Browning in Harrison Co.,OH. on 25 Jan.1837. Thomas & Hannah Drake moved to Monroe Co.,OH. after the 1840 census. They had 10 children. Their names were: William,Benjamin,John,Thomas Carter(my line),George Washington,Mary,Wesley,Frederick,Cassaundra & Esther Ann Drake. I don't know who Thomas Drake's siblings were yet either. At this point I don't know who Hannah Browning's parents or siblings were although we suspect she had at least one sister Cassandra Browning. Hannah Browning was born circa 1815 in OH. By the 1870 census most of the Thomas Drake Family had moved to Wapello Co.,IA.

Thanks for any help you can give me with this elusive family of mine!
